Sometimes a well-written piece allows one to step outside of one’s identity and perceive what it is like to be someone else. This is one.

CMIO’s take? Those of you who have worked with me know that one of my favorite things is to have 1:1 meetings in my office and serve tea. Taking inspiration from my spouse who enjoys throwing cocktail parties and creating a fanciful drink menu, I recently put together a CMIO’s teahouse menu. I hope you enjoy it.
Watch this video/ read the transcript. I love this for several reasons:
The Taiwanese are my people
“Digital Minister” is the best title of all time
Taiwan’s national response to COVID is a model for the world (Taiwan: fewer than 1 death per 100,000 vs USA: 66 deaths per 100,000)
The transparency of information and the building of trust: the government published its COVID and mask data with open API’s so private industry and nonprofits could build 100’s of apps to improve healthcare and the commonwealth
The POETRY of Taoism!
CMIO’s take? It is worth a watch. Informatics applied effectively at the national level. And, bonus: mindful Taoist philosophy applied to transparency of information. Zowie!
